Beaches Beach Leisure
There are a couple of extra ordinary beaches in Myanmar that have unspoiled natural beauties, clean turquoise blue waters, white silvery sandy coconut fringed beach line, from standard to the seductive boutique-style resorts, not to mention fresh tasty seafood are effortlessly accessible by flight or by land. Most visitors find the best way end their trip at one of Myanmar’s two premier beaches – Ngwe Saung or Ngapali, where both beaches have different quality of attractions and delights.

Ngapali Beach

This is where most visitors go by flights, direct from Yangon, Bagan, and Inle Lake (Heho airport). There are daily flights on private airlines from the said airports. There are also seasonal flights on selective days from Sittwe to Ngapali beach. Some people try to reach Ngapali beach by road via Pyay, which can be reached from both Yangon and Bagan within a day. However, it will be a really exhausting day if you try to reach Ngapali from Yangon, although it can be done theoretically. For the visitors coming from Bagan must make a stopover in Pyay and continue on the next day. So far, it is best to reach Ngapli Beach by flight.

The itinerary could be like this:

• Fly to Ngapali beach from (Heho/Bagan/Yangon/Sittwe)
• Ngapali Beach leisure at your own pace
• Return flight to Yangon in the morning or late afternoon – stay overnight in Yangon or direct departure out for next destination

Ngwe Saung Beach

It is located in the direct west of Yangon, conveniently reached by 5-hrs drive traversing great delta region. Ngwe Saung is so far the longest beach in Myanmar and recently developed with necessary infrastructures including quality hotels and resorts. Visiting Ngwe Saung beach is far more than a beach leisure as visitors can experience the delta-culture through many villages, the capital of Ayerwaddy division Pathein, and a elephant camp where jungle safaris on elephant back can also enjoy. There are also numerous accommodations can be chosen… from budget to luxury resorts. Air Bagan has a few seasonal flights from Inle Lake, Bagan, and Yangon to Pathein, which is 28mile from Ngwe Saung Beach.

The itinerary could be like this:

• Fly back to Yangon from (Heho/Bagan/Mandalay) in the morning – direct transfer to Ngwe Saung Beach from the airport with short visits en route
• Ngwe Saung Beach leisure at your own pace
• Drive back to Yangon before noon – stay overnight in Yangon or direct departure out for next destination
